Thanks, I telneted into eisner and used my DECUS number from 2002. I
entered that in the www.hpe.com webpage, and am waiting for a response.
Back in 2002 I got the VMS 7.2 media, PAKS and layered products, but a
lot has changed since then. I can't find my media, but maybe I don't
At this point I am awaiting the SCSI2SD adapter to use in the MVII. I
also have a MV 4000/400 I need to get current license PAKS for.
